Latin name: Solanum lycopersicum ' Napoli A Fiaschetto'
Fiaschetto is a small Italian tomato that grows incredibly well in the Lower-St-Lawrence region in the garden (not in a greenhouse).
Wonderful and perfect little heirloom Italian tomato. Delicious fresh or cooked, makes excellent confit tomatoes, ideal candidate for canning and makes a delicious sauce.
Italian variety that resembles small Roma tomatoes. Juicy for an Italian tomato, very good flavour: rich and aromatic.
5 cm wide tomatoes with a slightly variable shape (pear-shaped to oval), and with a hilly end.
It is also very popular for drying: cut the tomato in half lengthwise and let it dry in the sun... But let's be realistic and a little less romantic unfortunately, here in Quebec, you're more likely to dry them in a dehydrator or oven.
